    Folks, I am wondering if anyone here can recommend a way of listening to a couple of local/regional radio stations on my HTC Desire, running Froyo on o2 in the UK.
    The stations are Northsound 1 in the Aberdeen area, and BBC Radio Scotland FM.
    I have tried A Online Radio and Myplayer, neither will recognise the stations even when entering the url I would use in the pc's browser to listen online at home.

    Only reason I want to stream these is the non-existent reception using the native FM radio app in the phone.

    Cheers
    Ainslie

    I don't know if it will serve your purpose, but a lot of folks like this one:

    TuneIn Radio - Android app on AppBrain

    I have been using Tunein Radio, and I love it, but I don't get any calls while it's on. With my Blackberry and iheartradio, a call would always interrupt the radio stream, so I wouldn't miss calls. I have notified Tunein Radio, but don't know if they'll honor me with a response. Anyone else have this problem? Is there a setting missing, or any fix for it?

    I'm running it on a Samsung Captivate.

    I used WunderRadio on Windows Mobile and now on Android. It's pretty good but the Android version is a little buggier for me.
